Rock Band to Receive Public Music Store Shortly

| | Comments (0)
MTV Games (part of Viacom) and its Harmonix Group announced that it will launch the Rock Band Network, an effort to create an online destination "that gives musicians and record labels the ability to author their own original recordings into gameplay files and sell their music as playable Rock Band tracks through the newly-created Rock Band Network Music Store."
Alex Rigopulos, CEO and co-founder of Harmonix said, "Our goal with Rock Band has always been to go beyond making music games and create a true music platform."


The Rock Band Network will launch in a beta state in August and will require a membership in Microsoft's XNA Creator's Club Online (itself requiring a minimum $50 fee to access). Completed tracks will then need to be approved, at which point they will be added to the store where they will remain exclusive to the Xbox 360 platform for 30 days.
